Youth Health Talk website

Do you know what it's like to have an eating disorder?

Would you like to share your story to help others?

My name is Ulla and I'm a researcher at the University of Oxford. I'm interviewing young people about their experiences of living with an eating disorder for an award winning website We want to understand what it really feels like to have an eating disorder and give voice to young people who've been through it. We particularly want to make sure that the experiences of boys and young men are included and understood better by health professionals, the public, and young people. So far we've had more interest from young women who've experienced Anorexia Nervosa and are now particularly looking for volunteers who are:

The interview is very relaxed and informal, just a chat about your experiences. It's entirely up to you what to talk about and what not. Afterwards, I will send a transcript to check through and you can change or delete anything you want. You can also take part completely anonymously.

Please get in touch for more information, there is no obligation to take part!
Thank you,

“I saw a SWEDA support worker on campus at university. I had been struggling with binge eating disorder and compulsive exercise for about ten years. The SWEDA support worker was able to help me look at my relationship with food and my body in a different way. I have learned to be kinder to myself and they taught me techniques which helped me to slow down my thinking. Now I can go out and have fun without worrying all the time.”
